    Howdy. I had the same problem for a year. I finally just downloaded the latest version of Putty (V6.0 when this was written). Problem went away.
    Try the latest version!
    Also, it wasn't like a settings/config problem, because, when I installed the new version of Putty it remembered all my old settings (connection names etc....) and i just connected and it worked. Could be, perhaps, an issue with the old executable itself (sending a badly formed or illegal command to the SSH server for example, who knows).

    RESOLVED for me anyway, hopefully for you too!

    Cheers.

    Sparkles...can you please elaborate the question.

    if you want to connect to a server

    do this on servers which u want to connect
    service sshd start
    or
    chkconfig --sshd on

    I just had the opposite experience. I've been running PuTTY v0.60 for almost a year without problems. Today I installed version 0.61 and now, every time I SSH to one of my RHEL systems, I get the following:
    ----------------------------------------
    login as: [a non-root user]
    Access denied
    <a non-root user>@hostname.FQDN's password: [password]
    Last login: etc etc



    It's only an annoyance at present, but I'd like to know what's causing it.
